Post Tensioning

Post Tensioning


Prestressing is a technique of construction in which internal stresses of a suitable magnitude & distribution are introduced in a member, so that the stresses resulting from external loads are counteracted to a desired degree.

Pre-Tensioning & Post-Tensioning

Pre-Tensioning is a method of prestress concrete in which the tendon is tensioned before the concrete is placed.

In case of Post-Tensioning, the tendon is tensioned after the concrete has hardened. The prestressing force is imported to the concrete by bearing & this procedure can be applied to members either precast or cast-in-situ.
